In the topics below this thread are links to zipped packages of the image files needed to print your own copies of the Love/Answer Cards. I designed my cards for Avery product 8876 and uploadable Photoshop files for VistaPrint, which requires CMYK files with larger sizes for bleed. In the zipped package are two folders. The Avery folder contains a file with the suffix .avery. Those you can choose to load into the Design & Print software and the work is done for you. However I also added the source images just incase they are needed. In the CMYK folder are the two images needed for VistaPrint.

The do it your self cards I used are:

Avery® Two-Side Printable Clean Edge® Business Cards for Inkjet Printers 8876, Ivory, Matte, Pack of 200 Product Number: 8876

They are available online and in most national chain office supply stores. Your best price is probably here…

To print on them you need the Avery Design & Print software package for Mac and Windows. It is available for a free download here…

Is there a difference in quality? There are advantages to each choice. The colors are a bit brighter when the Avery cards are printed on a good inkjet printer. The difficulty is that you have to make sure the software is lining up the images with the printer and likely will have to adjust the placement of the file slightly to have an excellent print. I had very good luck with the Avery Design & Print software package. Note that it must be used with an Internet connection even though you download and install a software package.

I was very happy with the VistaPrint results. If I can ever afford to give away small quantities of the cards once the samplers are gone I will use their service. A small percentage had registration problems and the colors aren’t quite as bright (CMYK vs RGB). On the other hand their Premium Matte card stock, on which the sampler cards were printed, makes the cards feel very substantial.

The files are offered freely without any restrictions. I can’t help with tech support so you need to be knowledgeable about your computer to printer interface.
